Missing in action
I haven’t blogged in a good long while about what’s going on at AT&T Park, and ironically, that’s been because there’s been so much happening that I’ve been too busy. Perhaps you took note of a few festivities that took place around here around July 8-10? And now the place (including the pressbox) is packed because of the exploits of the left fielder.
During All-Star week, I was asked to help out SportsJunkie.TV, an offshoot of San Francisco’s own incredibly popular Justin.TV. Dr. Doug, a dentist from Yountville, wore a webcam on his cap and took in as much of the All-Star week activities as he could. MLB.com helped him out by getting him field access for part of batting practice before the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game, and I showed him around the ballpark.
While serving as Dr. Doug’s tour guide, I remembered why I started this blog in the first place — to share some of the cool things happening at AT&T Park and also provide an insider’s view of this beautiful ballpark. And I’d slacked off because of the crush of my regular job as an editorial producer for MLB.com.
But I’m going to try to be better about it. Though Barry Bonds’ run at the record is all-consuming at this point, I hope to provide more regular updates. I’ll also try to catch up on some things I documented over the last few months and never posted.
